Ananda temple is considered to be one of the most surviving masterpiece of the Mon architecture. Also known as the finest, largest, best preserved and most revered of the Bagan temples. During the 1975 earthquake, Ananda suffered considerable damage but has been totally restored.
The Gubyaukgyi temple near Wetkyi-in village North East of old Bagan was built by King Kyanzittha in the early 12th century. During his reign the empire saw prosperity and the construction of grand temples like the Ananda and the Myazedi pagoda.
The Gubyaukgyi?s architecture shows Indian influence, particularly the spire which resembles that of another temple in Bagan, the Mahabodhi. Both are based on the Mahabodhi temple of Bodh Gaya in India, the place where the Buddha reached enlightenment some 2,500 years ago.
